The United Kingdom of Greater Orcadia is a massive, socially progressive nation, ruled by Iain Gordon with a fair hand, and notable for its punitive income tax rates and stringent health and safety legislation. The democratic population of 4.139 billion Greater Orcadians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Healthcare, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Edinburgh. The average income tax rate is 64.0%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The strong Greater Orcadian economy, worth 169 trillion Orcadian Pounds a year, is quite specialized and led by the Information Technology industry, with major contributions from Trout Farming, Cheese Exports, and Retail. State-owned companies are reasonably common. Average income is 41,057 Orcadian Pounds, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Vats of anabolic steroids are being dumped into the ocean to make Greater Orcadian mussels the biggest in Europe, Greater Orcadia has designated Edinburgh as its capital city, Iain Gordon has just been declared ruler of Greater Orcadia in an international press conference, and Christianity has been named as Greater Orcadia's national religion. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Greater Orcadia's national animal is the Deer, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Christianity.

Greater Orcadia is ranked 83,796th in the world and 509th in Europe for Largest Cheese Export Sector, scoring 2,149.16 on the Mozzarella Productivity Index.
